Columbia University Press, 1998 - Social Science - 298 pages
In her provocative article "The Male Lesbian and the Postmodern Body", Jacqueline Zita explored the tension between the physical body and the constructed psyche. By questioning the assumptions of "normal" heterosexual society, queer theorists, and lesbian feminists, Zita compiles a reevaluation of the relationship of sexual identity to the "material body".
